Arizona Cardinals cornerback Patrick Peterson is sitting back and hoping that he can receive a huge pay raise much like Seattle Seahawks corner Richard Sherman. As far as Peterson is concerned, he has a much more difficult task in the Cardinals defensive scheme than Sherman has in Seattle.
“[Y]ou put [Sherman] in our system, I don’t believe he would last,” Peterson told Arizona Sports 98.7 FM. “Obviously, his job is much easier than mine.”
Peterson then went into detail about why Sherman has a much easier job.
“If you look at their scheme and you look at our scheme, he’s a Cover-3 corner, period,” Peterson said. “A lot of guys say he’s a shutdown corner, but if you look at film and guys who understand the game, go back and look at film and see how his defense is.
“I believe if you put him in our system, I don’t think he’d be able to last, honestly, because I’m asked to do much more than he is.”
Peterson is hoping that he can get a big money deal like Sherman received, so it is no surprise that he is trying to hype himself up and show how he stacks up against the best cornerback in the game.
Now we will just have to patiently sit back until Richard Sherman catches wind of the comments and responds.
